What I want for Christmas

Thanks to Slashdot and the Guardian I now know what I want for Christmas, only problem is finding someone kind enough to pay for it. :-)

Russia's federal space agency took a giant leap in the field of cosmic tourism yesterday with the announcement it will offer a $100m (£57m) trip to the moon.

Roskosmos leaked details of the project as Nasa's space shuttle Discovery prepared for launch from the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida. A source at the Russian agency confirmed to the Guardian that the technology was in place for a flight to be launched within 18 months of a down payment.

By the time the Americans get there the Germans will have towels on all the good spots.
